It’s hard to believe there are only a few short weeks left of the 2020-2021 school year, which means my time as your Parents’ Association president will soon be over. The year imagined in September did not live up to our expectations but we made it and it was meaningful nonetheless. I would like nothing more than to celebrate the year and all that we have accomplished with our annual Fair at the Santa Monica Pier, but we just aren’t there yet.
In true Buckley fashion, however, we will have a celebration one way or another! Together with our Fair Chairs, Holly Feller and Jennifer Decker, we have planned a wonderful event to end the year. Please join us for “To Buckley with Love: A Virtual Variety Show” on Wednesday, May 19 at 6:00 p.m.
We will webcast a live television show from the CCA with our host Ian Gomez and featured performances from our Fifth Grade Chorus and the Foo Fighters. You will enjoy appearances from the Buckley Griffin, the Class of 2021 Lifers, favorite teachers and staff, and more!
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Griffin Relief Fund. This important fund was established in 2020 to provide short-term tuition assistance to families with unexpected financial needs as a result of the pandemic. We realize that the financial circumstances of many of our families have not returned to what they were pre-pandemic and want to show support. I hope you’ll join me in watching on May 19 and supporting the Griffin Relief Fund so we can continue to support our students and families who benefit from a Buckley education today and for the rest of their lives.
